Western rig

Seen on the street in Perth 10 days ago a custom Toyota rig. Very nicely done although care would be needed loading that rear tray otherwise the steering could become very light.
Go back 20/30 years and Toyota 4WDs dominated the roads in rural Australia. There are still plenty of them but they now share the roads with a myriad of other brands. Out in deepest,remote south western Western Australia I was surprised by how many Land Rovers I saw including quite a few Defenders. For many years selling Defenders in Australia was very hard work but in the run upto the cessation of production at the end of last year they could not get enough of them. It's a weird world.
